Rickie Fowler sets early pace at US PGA Championship

Rickie Fowler sets early pace at US PGA Championship

He revealed afterwards he was swinging at only "90 per cent" with his driver, but it was his irons he was battling in the second round as he mixed five birdies with four bogeys to close on four under par - six shots adrift of early clubhouse leader Gary Woodland.

His stroke on the green was pure, and Woods walked in his first birdie of the day at No. 2.

The 34-year-old shot a 4-under-par 66 on Friday, carding a 130 for the first 36 holes of the tournament and setting a PGA Championship record. His putt was dead center, moving him to 3-under for the tournament.

While countryman Adam Scott is safely in the clubhouse five shots off the pace, Day was among the half of the field who failed to complete their second rounds before play was suspended for the day due to unsafe weather.

Ireland's Lowry re-started on four under, but joined world number one Dustin Johnson, Charl Schwartzel and Thomas Pieters on seven under after birdies on 12, 13 and 17 for a flawless six-under 64.

Woodland entered Friday's round at Bellerive Country Club leading the field by one stroke after firing a 6-under-par 64 in the first round.

"Butch [Harmon] and I focused so hard this year on driving the golf ball because, when I drive it in play, I'm playing a game a lot of guys aren't playing out here, and that's a huge advantage". He started the back nine double bogey-bogey to stand 4-over when the storm struck.

Koepka, Kisner and Schwartzel thrilled the crowd by chasing the all-time record low men's major score of 62 set by South African Branden Grace in the third round at the 2017 British Open at par-70 Royal Birkdale.

Baidu ready to beat Google if US firm returns to China: CEO
News of a potential return have been met with resistance from employees and criticism from human rights advocates and lawmakers. But when news that Google was considering a comeback with censored apps, Baidu's stock price fell 7.7 per cent.

The day was mostly about Woodland and Kisner, who fed off each other because they both played so well. "Having said that, I would have shot a much higher score yesterday". "I've been so in the zone, you don't know where you are".

"I just love how calm he is out there, " Kisner said.

A whopping 62 players are under par through two rounds, and the 36-hole cut of 140 is the lowest in PGA Championship history dating to the start of stroke play for the event in 1958.

"In the practice rounds, I thought you've got a good chance of shooting a low score". "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".

"The golf course is gettable", Woodland said.

Johnson, who is going by Zach J. Johnson this week to differentiate himself from Zach Johnson, the 15-year veteran on the PGA Tour, shot a 1-under-par 69 on Friday to finish at 145, but it won't be good enough to stick around for the weekend, as the cut is expected to be around even par. It's the nature of the course that makes him feel he has a farther climb than the seven shots that separate him from Woodland.

"I feel safe because I feel safe where my game is", Woodland said. Personally, I would prefer more hard and firmer, faster conditions on the greens.
